DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware Transportation officials say Prime Hook Road is open again following flooding that closed the road during last week's winter storm.

The road connects Prime Hook Beach to Coastal Highway and runs along the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. The storm cut off the main access to the Delaware Bay community in Sussex County. The road is used by about 200 year-round residents.

State transportation officials are warning motorists that some water may remain on the roadway. Temporary access for residents had been provided through a private gated community at the north end of Broadkill Beach.
